As a 1k, I did a series of cancelling/rebooking of reward flights as better flight options came available.

I'm having trouble understanding if I was correctly credited back the re-deposited miles....

Good point - those sleeping through it would have minimal impact. Those trying to work, or having trouble sleeping would like electronics to work. I was on this flight last year, and I was one of the...

Huh, didn't know PJs were supposed to be available. I flew this in Polaris last Nov. Was not offered any in either direction. Are you required to ask for them?

Thanks, I wasn't aware of Expert Mode. I just enabled and checked, unfortunately at R0, and 1 seat just got taken, so only 3 left now. I guess the split PNR at check-in is our best bet.

Thx - fixed the RPU. I assume it is better to split the 3 person PNR, since if there isn't available space up front for all 3, they wouldn't allocate it to us?

Unfortunately I don't have...

We are planning a family trip for 4. We have one 1k, and the rest no status. What is the best way to book the flights (we plan to pay for them and not use miles)?

I think she woke up after orders were taken, and subsequently placed one during service, but all the hot entrees were claimed. It sounds like she just got the alternate cold meal, which is fine.

Ah, got it. No, she just e-mailed that they had run out when they got to her, so she had the cereal meal.

She usually doesn't pay attention to the 1k perks - too busy working on the flights I...

Understood - but at that point it's the only shot in the dark left. It also sounds like status makes a difference on OPS decision-making. If there were some GS/1k'ers in the mix, the outcome might...
